I've had VS2000 netbooting and running VMS 5.5-something and currently I
netboot experimental linux-vax kernels on it. No problems at all. I use
the same mopd as with NetBSD, but haven't tried NetBSD on a VS2K.
I use the thinwire ethernet connector, never used a transceiver on that
type of machine. Assumably older DEC devices want the setting thing on the
transceiver disabled. Heck, I just can't recall what the little DIP was
called... it's found on newer transceivers.
